It looks like the dept head has an MFA in glass from Tyler and has been working in glass for twenty years

"He has been working with glass for over twenty years. In 2005 he received a fellowship from the Creative Glass Center of America. He has grants for his artwork from several sources, including the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts in 2009 and the Contemporary Glass of Philadelphia in 2005 and 2002. His work has been exhibited at M.A.D. in New York City, the Renwick Gallery in Washington D.C., SOFA Chicago, SOFA New York, and other venues. He is represented by the Snyderman Gallery in Philadelphia."

Am I reading this wrong?
